Siemens Wind Power announced it has received an order to supply 17 direct drive wind turbines for Uljin onshore wind power plant by SK D&D, a real estate and renewable energy project developer in South Korea.
The project is located at Gyeongsangbuk province on the east coast of South Korea.
The scope of the contract includes delivery and technical field assistance for the installation of 16 wind turbines of the new type SWT-3.6-130 on different towers ranging from 85-115 meter hub heights and one SWT-3.0-108 on a 71 meter tower.
Siemens was also contracted for full service and maintenance over a period of 10 years including Siemens’ advanced remote monitoring and diagnostics services.
The Uljin wind farm project is Siemens’ second project for SK D&D and also its second order in South Korea.
In 2014 both companies successfully completed the 30 MW Gasiri Wind Farm close to the city of Gasiri in the province of Jeju-do.
“We are proud that SK D&D decided to partner with us again for their second wind project in South Korea”, says Thomas Richterich, CEO Onshore at Siemens Wind Power. “Uljin wind farm is a very important project for us since it marks the premiere of our latest generation of direct drive turbines in the Korean wind market.”
